Sure, I’d be happy to provide you with a simple crochet pattern to make a basket using T-shirt yarn. This is a great way to repurpose old T-shirts into functional and stylish home decor. Here’s a basic pattern for a crochet basket:

Materials Needed:

  • T-shirt yarn (you can make your own by cutting old T-shirts into strips and joining them together)
  • Crochet hook (size appropriate for your T-shirt yarn, usually around 8-10 mm)
  • Scissors
  • Stitch marker (optional)

Finished Size: The size of your basket will depend on how many rounds you crochet. You can customize it to your preference.


  • ch: chain
  • sc: single crochet
  • inc: increase (work 2 sc in the same stitch)
  • sl st: slip stitch
  • st(s): stitch(es)



  1. Make a magic ring.
  2. Round 1: Ch 1 (does not count as a stitch here and throughout), work 6 sc into the ring. Pull the ring tight to close the circle. (6 sc)
  3. Round 2: Work 2 sc in each st around. (12 sc)
  4. Round 3: Sc in next st, inc in next st around. (18 sc)
  5. Round 4: Sc in next 2 sts, inc in next st around. (24 sc)
  6. Round 5: Sc in next 3 sts, inc in next st around. (30 sc)

Sides: 7. Rounds 6-10 (or more, for a taller basket): Sc in each st around. (30 sc)

  1. You can adjust the height of your basket by repeating Round 10 as many times as desired.

Handles: 9. Lay your work flat and count 10 stitches from the middle of one side. Join your yarn with a sl st in the 11th st.

  1. Ch 1, sc in the same st and the next 7 sts. Leave the remaining stitches unworked. (8 sc)
  2. Rounds 12-15: Sc in each st around. (8 sc) You can adjust the number of rounds to make the handles longer or shorter.
  3. Fasten off and weave in any loose ends.

Repeat steps 9-12 on the other side of the basket to create the second handle.

Finishing: 13. Weave in any remaining yarn tails.

Your T-shirt yarn crochet basket is now complete! This pattern is a basic guideline, and you can modify it by changing the number of stitches, rounds, or handles to suit your preferences. Experiment with different colors of T-shirt yarn to create unique and functional storage solutions for your home.
